    Summary

    "The original plan was to go on the run. Aaron and I decided to do one into wine country in France but as often in life, a chateau by a river, state of the art motorcycles and sipping Côtes du Rhône all day long are not the things you end up having, it’s more likely to have handcuffs snapped onto your wrists whilst your husband is screaming at you from across the road because you turned yourself in and didn’t tell him in advance.

    "We were supposed to do this together!" is what I heard him shout before I was shoved into the police car.

    Truth is, I was never gonna let him do that.
    He knows why, but he pretends that he doesn’t because he wanted to abandon his life for me; because he loves me against his better judgement.
    He’s headstrong like that.

    Filling out those divorce papers was the worst few minutes of my life. I didn’t recognise my own handwriting; it was all scrawled and messy, just barely legible.
    It looked like Aaron’s handwriting.
    Maybe I just wanted to see a piece of him appear in front of me.
    I’m not doing great with the letting him go part, am I?"

    Robert kept a diary in prison. This is what he wrote.

    AKA Robert's POV to "I promise you the best life".

    Summary

    They sat there, just enjoying the warmth of the day, the warmth of their embrace.
    It felt peaceful.
    Reassuring.

    Robert tightened his grip with a deep sigh, his mouth on Aaron’s neck now.

    “You’re the best husband I’ve ever had”, he said, his smile evident.

    “Yeah, the previous ones could’ve done better”, Aaron said with a twinge of sadness to his voice.

    “Don’t”, Robert breathed, “we’re here now. Finally."

     

    In 2021, Aaron realised he'd been wasting his life for the past two years. He ended his relationship with Ben, left Emmerdale and moved to Scotland to become himself again - and make amends with the family he'd lost.

    Now it's spring 2022, Robert is out of prison and Robron can finally begin to rebuild their future together.

    This fic can be read as a separate work though it is a sequel to "I promise you the best life." The events in the previous fic will be featured and the story can easily be followed just through this one - but if you want a more detailed experience of how Aaron put things right and got Robert back, you should read the first installment.

    Summary

    Adam is determined to celebrate Aaron's 40th but the birthday boy is less than keen.

    The day turns out nothing like either of them would've expected, and Aaron ends up facing the memories of a man he tried so hard to forget.

    Another angsty reunion fic here because apparently that's my official obsession. Served with a side of Bartsy brotherhood, family feels and banter for soothing effect.

    In this fic, Robron's history is mostly canon compliant until Robert's exit - from thereon it absolutely is not.

    Summary

    "He saw the stack of papers with Seb’s perfect handwriting on them, the books, the poster of some famous girl whose identity he hadn’t the faintest idea of.

    The hoodie on his chair.

    Aaron’s hoodie, now just barely purple, worn-out and torn, but so precious to Seb.

    Robert picked it up, holding it against his chest.

    It wasn’t just Seb who made his heart clench with sadness."

     

    When Seb goes missing on New Year's Eve after a fight with Robert, his estranged dads join forces to find him - and just might find something else in the process as well.

    Part 3 of the "Anniversaries" series.

    Summary

    He sees the hair first, Robert’s unstyled floppy bedhead hair that he secretly loved so much, because it was so soft to run the fingers through.

    And then the inmate who’s blocking the sight walks to the left and then he’s there. It’s Robert.

    It’s Robert with his long limbs, all legs and arms they used to joke about, so they bought Seb the little plush Giraffe. And god, Aaron misses being wrapped up with those arms, misses his husband clinging to him like a giant octopus at night. Robert with his cute nose and his lush lips and his little dimple on the chin that Aaron loved to kiss on lazy Sunday mornings in bed. Fuck, Aaron missed him so, so, so, much!

    — — —
    Robert and Aaron meet for the first time after 11 years.
